Disbursements are costs related to your matter that are payable to third parties, such as Land Registry fees, property tax and Stamp Duty Land Tax. We handle the payment of the disbursement on your behalf to ensure a smoother process. This is not an exhaustive list and other disbursements may apply depending on the type of property or transaction. We will update you on the specific fees upon receipt and review of the title deeds, and will provide you with an updated schedule of costs if one is required.

Please note, if the property is leasehold, there are certain disbursements which will be set out in the individual lease relating to the property. We will advise you on these upon receipt of the lease documents.

Where a property is a new build, it is expected that a purchaser will make a contribution towards the builder’s solicitor’s costs for drafting the legal documents. This is known as an engrossment fee.
